I received a call last week on my answering machine about a television survey, I was home but did not pick up the phone, I figured it was a scam so I just ignored the call. Monday I received a postcard from Neilson, the television rating people, saying that I would be receiving my television viewing diary in a few days. Well today I got an envelope in the mail from them with the viewing diary in it. There was also a piece of paper with a thank you from them for participating and in the paper were 5 crisp brand new $1 bills. It said "please accept the enclosed money as a token of our appreciation for your participation". I am so happy. I just love free money.

Good for you Kathy! Now you have the power to let the world of TV moguls know what you like in tv programing. Can you feel the power? Maybe Ted Turner would like to slip you a few bucks for picking a few of his shows. Think of the possibilities...:D

How cool! Are you guys just picked at random, or did you sign up somewhere to be considered for it?

Heather, It was a random thing. I am the only one that I know of in my town that got one. I am in small town so everyone knows everyones business and no one at church or the market had heard of anyone else doing it so I think it is just me.

Debbie, we will be Village moguls now with all of our money, LOL. Mine starts tomorrow at 5pm and last for 1 week too.
